How long have I been knitting? So much has happened since I last lifted my head.
Please note: this photo in no way accurately represents the true colour of TY. See previous posts for the real shade.
Thoughts so far:
- Why do I have almost three whole balls of Felted Tweed left over? Anyone?
- When will I remember to add length to every flippin’ thing I knit? I’m not tall. By any stretch of the imagination. Please blocking, work your magic.
- I’m displeased by the four huge holes where the underarm stitches were grafted.
- The collar is much poofier and Mary Maxim circa 1962 than I expected.
- It fits! Stop whining!
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get a decent modelled photo tomorrow as I’m working all day then going straight to the salon for a much needed hair cut and it now starts getting dark at two (I swear!) but I’m sure I’ll have some dark, tired-faced yet with great-hair photos soon.
Now that this speed freak monkey is off my back I actually completed other tasks today. Like laundry! and grocery shopping! and baking!
These are these. I haven’t tried them yet as they’re for breakfasts but I will give the verdict.
The jury is already in on these guys:
Remember when I made these glorious cookies and raved about them (can you tell I love Allrecipes? It’s Epicurious’s less stuck up little sister)? Same recipe. Same baker. Different day. Way suckier. I think I needed more flour but I ran out. It doesn’t stop us from eating them though.
At least I have an awesome container to store them in.
I got this at Value Village many year ago. On the side it says “nuts and sesame seed moon cakes with one egg yolks.”
I also finally got to use these awesome labels that I got just before I left Japan.
I have two more that say ‘bread’ and ‘rice’ (of course) and many more around the apartment with other labels and cute pictures.
